    Samsung Electronics, today announced that it has developed an 8GB microSD (Secure Digital) memory card, a size optimal for today’s multimedia mobile phones. Featuring the highest capacity today for a microSD card, the new fingernail-sized card is capable of storing 2,000 MP3 music files, 4,000 digital photos, or approximately 5 DVD-quality movies. With a read speed of 16MB/s and a write speed of 6MB/s, Samsung’s 8GB microSD card well exceeds the Speed Class 4 SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) standard. Samsung predicts that by 2010, the 8GB memory card will be the market mainstream in terms of units sold.

    This is great news. The compact size of MicroSD makes it so convenient to use, especially with mobile phone technology as it converges with computer/pda devices.

    The added bonus of the high speed connectivity (faster than class 4 SDHC) makes it feasible to use with Digital SLR cameras, without having to resort the the expensive, and incompatible SDHC devices. This will make it ideal for entry level SLR cameras.
